Draft Magazine celebrates the best places to grab a brew across America.
As craft beer has exploded, so has the number of incredible places that serve it. This list celebrates those special haunts with less than three locations and one passionate focus: beer. There might be darts and a jukebox or candlelight and a turntable; there might be five beers or 500. But in every spot on our list, you’ll find an excellent brew in your glass and people—staff, owners, barflies—who care about that as much as you do.
File it away for your travels. I’ve been to most of the places listed in Portland, Ore., Boston and San Francisco and would agree with Draft Mag’s selections.
On another note, Andrew Sullivan looks at the slow death of dive bars. The best bars are superb beer bars that also double as a dive bar. The combination can’t be beat.
